Math Teacher Circle Grant


Assistant professors Sayonita Ghosh Hajra and Frank Shaw from the Department of Mathematics received a seed grant through the Math Teachers’ Circle Network of the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM). They are starting Saint Paul Elementary Math Teachers’ Circle (MTC), one of the first in the Twin Cities for elementary teachers. The purpose of this new MTC is to provide support to elementary teachers in the Twin Cities and engage them in learning mathematical concepts in a hands-on way. Through this circle they hope to strengthen as well as support the community in providing educators a support group where elementary teachers can come and explore new or common mathematical ideas in a newer way. The first meeting will be on January 26 in Drew Science Center.
